See Yourself As God Sees You!
Yesterday's Scripture Guidance
1 Corinthians 5:7
"Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch, as you really are. For Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed."
In today's Scripture..., Paul is writing to Believers at the church in Corinth. Paul is addressing problems in the church. Paul has heard that there were some in the church engaging in incest, yet the church had not denounced this person. Paul says that the church must condemn such a person..., and call the sin a sin. The church cannot accept sin, and go on about its way. Members of the church that sin must be called out for their sin; so that they have a chance to repent, and so that the church may move on as holy. The same guidance is for Believers. The Scripture says..., "Get rid of the old yeast." Reject your sinful habits! The Word says to do this..., "So that you may be a new unleavened batch, as you really are." You have been born again as a new creature! Washed and cleaned. The Word of God reminds each Believer..., "For Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed." Now walk in a new way! Amen.
Today..., the Word is speaking to Believers. The Word is challenging us to reject sinful ways. All Believers have a responsibility to call sin..., sin! We cannot allow sin to be accepted in our lives. Particularly repeated and planned sins. That is the old you! That is the old me! The Scripture says..., "Get rid of the old yeast." Reject your sinful habits! They are not alright! Do not accept them. Old repeated sins are the hardest to get rid of! Our flesh is so used to these old sins..., and craves them! Satan knows that your oldest sins are the sinful temptations that you have fallen for over and over again. So when you are saved...., Satan brings those temptations right back to you! Satan wants you off God's plan for you... that is why Satan keeps bringing those old sins to you. To get you off track! Your old sins are your old yeast! These are your sinful habits. Do not accept these old habits into your life anymore. Call your sin a sin..., and flee from them. Do not allow your old sins to stay in your new body that Christ has given you. Get rid of the old yeast in your life. Reject your sinful habits! Amen.
Today...., the Word is speaking to all Believers. We all have old sinful habits. I know mine, you know yours..., and Satan knows them too! Reject your sinful habits! The Word says to do this..., "So that you may be a new unleavened batch, as you really are." You have been born again as a new creature! Washed and cleaned! When you accepted Jesus..., your sins were washed away. At that moment you were born again..., you were a new creature in Christ Jesus! Do you know at that exact moment..., you had no sin in you! Jesus washed them away, and God forgot about them! You had a new start! Hallelujah! But if you were like me..., you quickly allowed sin to creep back into your body. There was some sin that your body remembered..., and craved. Some of the old yeast was still around, placed there by Satan. And even though we were washed clean..., our old self climbed back in with our old sins. We allowed it..., we chose it! That is why the Scripture is saying to get rid of old yeast! We cannot accept it in our lives..., and walk holy with Jesus! We have to reject our sinful habits, to truly be the clean body that Jesus has washed! If your clothes are dirty, and you wash them, take a bath, and put them back on as clean, but run right back to the dirt..., guess what? You are dirty! You cannot be the clean person that Jesus washed if you keep getting back into the dirt! Stay out of the dirt, so that you may stay clean just as Jesus has washed you. You have been born again as a new creature! Washed and cleaned! Amen.
Today..., the Word of God is speaking to all Believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Reject your sinful habits so that you will be clean. The Word of God reminds each Believer..., "For Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed." Now walk in a new way! Jesus has cleaned you..., your sins are forgiven by God! Now walk in a new way! Walk on the path that God has for you! Stays clean..., walk with God! Do not go back to the dirt! Jesus has washed you! Ask for forgiveness of your sins..., and Jesus will intercede for you and wash you again! Jesus has been sacrificed for you! That has already been done, and when you accepted Him, Jesus washed you clean! Jesus took your sins then, and He will take them today. Confess your sins..., and walk in a new way! Amen.
Today..., beginning right now, reject your sinful habits. You have been born again through Jesus, and you are a new creature. Ask for forgiveness of your old sins...., and Jesus will wash you again. Now walk in a new way! Glory to God! Thank you Jesus! Hallelujah! Amen.
YOU ARE A CHILD OF CHRIST!!!
